nFlow, a leading supplier of voice productivity and digital dictation solutions, today announced that Devereaux Solicitors, a London-based specialist litigation law firm, has successfully implemented nFlowLive.com, its Cloud-based Dictation-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution. Replacing an analogue tape dictation system, Devereaux Solicitors chose nFlowLive.com for its rich functionality, ability to seamlessly connect with its South Africa-based transcription service provider and offline working facility. Prior to selecting nFlow, working alongside Accesspoint Technologies, nFlow’s channel partner for nFlowLive.com, Devereaux Solicitors trialled nFlowLive.com and a hosted solution from another leading digital dictation solution provider. Accesspoint Technologies is an Application Service Provider specialising in facilitating the implementation of complete Cloud-based office solutions.
As a growing legal practice, Devereaux Solicitors has made a strategic decision to adopt enterprise Cloud technologies because they offer cost effective access to latest solutions, are easy to deploy and easily scale with business requirements. For instance, when implementing nFlowLive.com, the firm did not have to incur expenditure to purchase additional servers. All it needed was a PC and an internet connection to deploy the solution firm-wide. Devereaux Solicitors has experienced significant time savings and efficiency gains since implementing nFlowLive.com. It is able to better manage workload due to its transcription service provider’s access to nFlowLive.com, especially during absences of back-office staff during holidays or sickness.
The offline dictation facility allows users to dictate without an internet connection and upload when online. This feature was particularly appealing to Devereaux Solicitors as often fee-earners work remotely and on the ‘go’. Finally, logistically, the firm no longer needs to store tapes or risk losing records and notes due to tapes deteriorating in quality over time and use. John Ioannou, Senior Partner at Devereaux Solicitors, said, “In a legal business, time is money and we recognise the importance of adopting systems that make us more efficient and ultimately enable us to deliver a further improved service. Given the volume of complex paperwork we deal with, a digital dictation system is now indispensable for us. “nFlowLive.com is a perfect combination of simplicity and complexity – despite the underlying technical and workflow complexities, the speed and ease with which it was implemented was staggering. From the time we confirmed our order to nFlow, the solution was up and running in under 24 hours. For the user, it is very simple and intuitive to use requiring practically no training. It has delivered instantaneous productivity benefits and crucially has inbuilt, fail proof safeguards for security and disaster recovery.” Based on nFlowLive.com’s initial success, Devereaux Solicitors is now looking to deploy the nFlow BlackBerry solution, which will further enhance the firm’s mobile working capability.
Rob Lancashire, Sales and Marketing Director at nFlow, commented, “The business case for Cloud-based technologies can’t be refuted and we have designed nFlowLive.com to further enhance this concept. Its ability to seamlessly integrate with customers’ third party service providers via the Cloud to enable them to deliver quality services expediently is a case in point. With the legal market opening up as a result of reforms under the Legal Services Act, firms need to be able to maximise cost and time efficiencies and demonstrate agility to meet customer needs.” “We are delighted to have on board Accesspoint Technologies as our partner. Our combined expertise coupled with a common approach towards delivering the most cost-effective and latest technologies will prove very beneficial to customers”, Lancashire added. Through nFlowLive.com, customers have access to nFlow DDS Version 5.0, the second generation enterprise-class digital dictation system. It offers industry benchmark 99% service availability, a rich client install, secure data backup, disaster recovery, free online user training, and an option to entrust nFlow with the complete system administration.
